This page provides tips on how to use the search facility.
Enter your search terms in lower case. The search engine will find both the upper and lower case instances of your search term.
If you want to search for a specific word, literally as is, enclose it in double quotation marks, e.g. "elections". The result will display all pages containing the word "elections", but not "election".
If you want to search for a string of words or a phrase, enter the string in the specific order you want it, e.g. local government. The result will dislay all pages containing the two words exactly as you entered it.
If you want to search for pages with two or more words appearing in it, but not necessarily side by side, e.g. Smith and elections, enter: Smith AND elections. The result will display all pages containing the words Smith as well as elections.
If you want to search for pages with either of these words appearing in it, enter Smith OR elections. The result will display all pages containing at least one of your search terms (all pages containing the word Smith, all pages containing the word elections and all pages containing both these words).
Exclude pages that are not relevant to your search by preceding the search term NOT, e.g. Smith NOT elections.
